Defense into offense
TCU gets big pass play
Boykin struggled to get anything going through the air in the first half, throwing for 34 yards on five completions. The Frogs had 56 rushing yards, including a six-yard touchdown. They had 78 yards of total offense in the first half, but they needed one play in the second half to match that output. Boykin hit Brandon Carter for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of a third quarter drive to cut the lead to 21-14. It was Boykin’s seventh completion of the game.
Getting into Sooner territory
The TCU offense didn’t break into Oklahoma territory until just over five minutes were left in the third quarter. The Frogs ran one play in the Sooners territory before that, but it was set up by Carter’s first half interception. When TCU crossed midfield, the ball went right back to Oklahoma on a Boykin fumble. Defensive end R.J. Washington forced the fumble and linebacker Frank Shannon recovered at the 40-yard line. The turnover set up a 34-yard field goal for Oklahoma to extend its lead to 24-14.
